Halloween Costume time! Send in your photos!

Oliver has been thinking about what he wants to dress up as for halloween. This is his first Halloween in the neighborhood, and he was thinking maybe a ghost or a vampire or possibly a storm trooper. Everyone knows storm troopers get all the best candy!

A quick google imagine search provided a lot of good ideas for dog costumes. Like this one:


Oliver would like to see some other ideas. If you have a photo of your dog in a costume email them to Oliver at mr.oliverdog@gmail.com and we’ll post them here!

Back to School Time

With September rolling at us in full force – all the kiddies are back to school. Including Oliver! Towards then end of the summer his cousin Ophie’s mom from Oklahoma taught him ‘Give me your paw’. Which is really more ‘show me your paw out to the side and wiggle it a little’.  Oliver has repeatedly told me he doesn’t like his feet touched. ‘HANDS OFF MOMMA!’

So it has been with great difficulty to move from ‘Give me your paw’ to ‘Give me your other paw’. me: ‘GIve me your other paw’ – (sticks out same paw). no, ‘other paw!’ (same paw) ‘OTHER PAW’. (no paw) ‘OTHER’. (huffs. and sits. waiting patiently for the treat) fine. ‘give me kisses!’ licks my nose in a hurry!

that one he is good at. GOOD boy!!!!

his treat of choice currently is the pupperoni brand of Ribs. They are bigger than his nose and he chomp chomps them all up.

now that it is a little cooler we have also taken him to the dog parks in the area more often to keep socializing and exercising him. the goal is always to tire him out so he will stop tormenting the cat. last week was the Boston terrier meet up group at the park. there was one guy there with a stupid bandanna that Oliver was picking fights with. we’ve already discussed earlier his non-love for bandannas and so , a natural enemy was born.

Surf’s up

Oliver had seen a lot of dogs at the beach swimming in the surf. He thought is was ridiculous. Since when do dogs swim? Why would they swim – when dogs can run so fast? Makes little sense. Oliver has less than zero percent body fat and knows that he would sink like a stone a tiny little scrawny stone a wash at sea.  He mentioned this to me, and I told him that there were dogs who not only swam, but surfed. Behold. a surfing dog.

His reaction was stuper and amazement. But mostly he thinks ‘who let the dogs out’ is the greatest song since the barking jingle bells tune that comes out every christmas.

Beach time!

We took Oliver on vacation with us in the outer banks, north carolina, and he LOVED it! At night he chased little tiny crabs and during the day there was sand and feathers and wind to chase as well. Plus he met a lovely pooch named Veronica. Which he tried to woo her by peeing on her. He tells me the ladies love to be peed on. They LOVE it.

One of the days we tried ‘off the leash’ work. We unclipped oliver and he RAN about a quarter mile away. Then looked back and sprinted back to us – his little tongue wagging with the wind. Thank god he came back.

Here are some highlights from the vacation!

What a summer!

With labor day behind us, Oliver took a minute to reflect on the great summer he had. He is happy to be out of that darn cast – and able to run and jump and swim! He spent the summer in 8 different backyards, went camping, went to the ocean, went to the mountains. He saw a lot for a little puppy dog! Oliver – what was your favorite thing this summer?

‘Well, I liked the beach a lot – but I definitely did NOT like swimming’. ‘Really? you look so cute on your floatie in the pool’

 

‘no, you’re confusing ‘cute’ with ‘terror’ again. I am 11 pounds. I was freezing. and confused as to why I couldn’t see the ground’

‘you were fine – I wasn’t going to let you drown’

‘you just did it to take a picture for this blog didn’t you?’

‘yes’
